I am originally from India, have been teaching English in Thailand for over 6 years and have recently been an EFL lecturer at a reputed government university. I have decided to move on from my current job and find that even after all these years of experience and a M.A in TESOL, it is very difficult for me to find another job as almost all jobs these days explicitly or otherwise state that they will not entertain applications from non- Caucasians or non- Filipinos.
This is the epitome of discrimination in Thailand. I am thinking that realistically I'll have to move on to doing my Ph.D. and continue teaching in other parts of the world, where hopefully there are non-racist people. and the focus is SKILL, not SKIN.
